Analysis: The Lakers and Nash announced their joint decision Thursday, less than a week before the start of what would have been the 40-year-old Nash's 19th NBA season. He played in just 15 games last year with nerve root irritation, but hoped for a comeback season after several months of rehabilitation.

Analysis: Coach Byron Scott said Nash had "a little bit of a setback" earlier Wednesday while carrying bags. Scott says Nash "heard a twinge" in his back, and the coach suspected it was a back spasm. The Lakers don't know how long the two-time NBA MVP will be out of action.

Analysis: Nash feels revitalized from the long offseason after nerve problems in his back and left leg limited him to 15 games last season. The 40-year-old will have his minutes limited big-time.
